I’ve been seeing a lot of headlines like “Are We Entering another Golden Age of ERP” or “Software Industry Analysts Predict Growth Trend in 2011” or “Sales of Business Software Applications Rising.”
Of course, as a Microsoft Dynamics business solutions partner, we love those headlines. Then Microsoft chimed in this morning with a very upbeat piece from Michael Park, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Business Solutions. Park’s article is entitled: “Customers Choose Microsoft Dynamics when Investing in Business Applications.” I’ll whet your appetite with a direct quote of paragraph 1:
“As the economy continues its recovery, industry experts forecast renewed optimism in the software industry and the business applications space.

Tens of thousands of customers have signed up for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. Century Payments is recognizing a $300,000 annual savings by switching to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. What CRM system were they using before?
